"[A]lthough we don’t know how [language] works, we think and talk about it, and are aware of its power and utility.  Hence we operate as though under a spell, content to know that language is there, but not being able to see it plainly or penetrate its mystery. This paradox of the invisibility of language and yet its palpable presence in our lives, is what I am calling the Language Spell." 
(From Chapter One, p. 10)
